Gifting for someone who crafts can be a challenge. What do they already have? How do you know if it’s any good? What would they like? Will they use it? I think we can meet all of these challenges with the perfect gift – Press Perfect, in fact.

My Press Perfect line of products by Clover have been out for a year now, so it’s still quite new. And what a year it’s been. I’ve been all over the country introducing my line at shows, events and meetings. I could demo these little sweethearts in my sleep.

Gotta Have

What I can tell you after all of this is that these tools have really struck a chord with sewists. The Press Perfect collection is the new basics. From our Hot Hemmer to the Iron Finger, every item has function that makes our pressing tasks easier and better. I constantly hear – Where has this been all of my life!


Several Press Perfect products have been editor’s picks, staff recommendations and suggested stocking stuffers in national magazines – both consumer and trade. Clover is known for innovation and quality, so you know it’s good. These products grew out of my needs and the challenges I faced at the ironing board over 35 years of sewing.

Hard to Choose? At the time we launched, we immediately began receiving requests to offer the whole line as a boxed set. I couldn’t believe there were so many interested in all of the products. So, Clover listened and now offers ‘Press Perfect Essentials’, a boxed set of all ten items – the new basics!


There’s something for everyone in the Press Perfect line. The Essentials is a collection of hand tools, pressing surfaces and specialty products all aimed at improving results at the ironing board. We’ve covered all the bases at the ironing board and address the different pressing needs we encounter during our projects.

The Press Perfect Essentials Includes

2×4 Mighty Mini Board, (and replacement cover): The board you didn’t know you needed! Shaped like a 2×4, it goes where no board has gone before.

Iron Finger: Takes the place of your finger at the iron, can be pressed.

Point 2 Point Turner: 2 turning points, gentle curves, hera marker all in one.

Iron Safe: Teflon shoe to protect your iron sole plate and fabrics. Adhesives won’t stick.

Deluxe Take & Press Mat: Luxurious portable mat for pressing, pin blocking.

Hot Hemmer: Measure, mark, fold, press in one step

Hold It Precision Stiletto: Heat resistant tip for gripping at the iron, bent tip stiletto for great visibility

Touch Up Pressing Mitt: A pressing surface for your hand, reach inside a garment on hanger or dress form and press.

Dry Heat Pro Finish Pressing Sheets: Press the unpressable! For use with chalkboard, t-shirts, vinyl, PUL, laminates and more.



Ready For Gifting

The collection comes in a sturdy cardboard carry case box with a handle. It’s perfect for storing or toting your supplies. Just add a bow to the box and you’re done!
